Chad is on a gold rush
Just unbelievable this guy

Billabong

King Chad’s range is huge. 100 fly, 200fly, 200IM, 100 free, and 50 free……his 50 free is most impressive. He has so much additional speed this year. He looks like his 100 fly LCM can improve tremendously going into Worlds. It is laughable that David already has 3 down votes for some fairly innocuous praise. To all the “Phelpamaniacs” out there……your man is going down hill, and you just can’t face it. Get onto the King Chad band wagon. You’ll have a lot more fun.
